A Wintry Wonderland

We were expecting snow and received a beautiful white covering across the county.  There are still big fluffy flakes swirling in the air and it's nice to be on the inside baking gingerbread men while listening to Christmas carols.
A mosaic from three years ago, but it shows how everything looks today.  Quite a few areas were to get this snowfall, I hope everyone is keeping warm.
I'm linking with Mary for Mosaic Monday.

Picture-postcard pretty, Judith! We've seen the news about your weather and the havoc on the roads and in the airports, but near you all looks peaceful and bright.

Your house must smell heavenly, Judith, with the aroma of gingerbread. There was fresh snow here as well, so the day started with a bit of shoveling and a pot of soup simmering.

Judith, lovely winter scenes. Your mosaic looks new to me. I love the the top right shot of the bridge, very pretty. Looks cold there too, stay warm and have a happy week!

Lovely! I used to love the snow when we lived in it...at the beginning of the season anyway. Gorgeous photos!

Beautiful shots! This would get me into the Christmas spirit -- especially cookies and music!

Yes, the garden has a warm white blanket. Baking is the perfect solution for today. Have fun and take care. Jen

Judith,

The land is alight with the new snow, crystal and cold and so very pretty to look at, especially when you're home is warm and cozy with the aroma of gingerbread!

Have a lovely week!

We dug out from another foot...it was icy, windy and cold last night...today it is lovely and we are warm in front of the fire.

Your winter is a lovely wonderland Judith!

Glad to get the driveway cleared again. My feet were frozen. It sure is snowy. Valerie

podso said...

Such beautiful photos! Glad you don't have to go out and it sounds about perfect to be inside baking and carol listening!

Terri Buster said...

All great shots- so pretty. I almost feel left out today looking at all these snow pics everyone is posting...NOT!! HA HA I am not ready for those ice cubes yet!

Mary Howell Cromer said...

Very pretty when the snow mounds up and I see you have food for the birds...very nice!
It was 17' here one day last week...usually in high 30's this time of year. Happy week~

Wonderful photo collage/mosaic! Especially like that curved bridge over the stream.

That's what our place looks like today...YEAH!!!!...:)JP

September Violets said...

Oooo yes! We got a nice covering of fluffy snow too ... not difficult to remove, but still pretty on the trees. The birds have been happy to receive extra seeds today! Wendy x

Lovely photos and the best thing about snow. We did get hit with it also and I did get a few photos. Didn't have to go out in it luckily.

Beautiful -- really looks like Christmas is supposed to traditionally (also really looks cold). Gingerbread men sound wonderful.

Fishtail Cottage said...

just beautiful!

EG CameraGirl said...

Lovely snow, Judith. And I think I can smell the aroma of gingerbread cookies straight from the oven. YUM!

Jill Harrison said...

I so much enjoy seeing everyone's snow images this time of year as we sizzle in the summer heat here in Australia. I am Christmas baking today, perhaps I should put on Christmas carols too. Have a wonderful week.

It's a beautiful mosaic and perfect for this weekend. It sounds like you had a good day. We stayed home and baked, too...but it wasn't cold, just a little rainy this morning. Holiday hugs!

Linda said...

A beautiful winter wonderland...we are getting a storm here at the moment. I hope we don't have too much to dig out before going to work in the morning! I will be dreaming of your gingerbread men...Happy Christmas, Judith!

I love a fresh snowfall. Your mosaic photos are so pretty. I wonder what it will look like here in the daylight. I haven't made gingerbread men in years. They'd be good with a nice cup of tea. :)

Vee said...

I like your word picture as well as the mosaic! Hope we het to see a gingerbread!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

So Pretty!! Love the pics, but have to admit they make me shiver.:D Love to see pretty snow pics, but I am not a cold weather person.
Thanks for stopping by. Daughter said she wished there was an elf on the shelf when she was young, but I am not sure I would have had the creativity/imagination to keep it going.
Have a great week.

Rajesh said...

Awesome winter shots.

aspiritofsimplicity said...

It is so pretty. We had a storm this weekend also but it was a mix of rain and snow and was very messy. The ocean was wild and wonderful to see though.

Cindy said...

So Pretty are your Winter shots, even last years photos compared to this snow fall we just had don't quiet measure up. We got a lot of snow yeasterday and when I look out this morning it is piled half way up the tea room door. I know that it is just a drift but the thoughts of being snowed in are relaxing.

Would it be too bold of me to ask to be added to your tea blog favourites with my Hats'N Hospitalitea blog http://besidethetrail.ca/hatsnhospitalitea/ Thanks for posting

Just lovely over there Judith. :) I hope the temps drop down for us to have a little snow too. Not like a couple of years ago when literally all of England ground down to a halt; just enough for a pretty picture. :) C and I baked some gingerbread a week ago in Van. Doesn't it make everything smell heavenly?

Denise @ secondtimearoundfinds said...

Such wonderful winter scenes.
Lovely.

edenhills said...

That is a beautiful winter wonderland! I love that footbridge!

Beth said...

We get a warm day tomorrow that one meteorologist called a "snow eater." It is to be 47 tomorrow; the colder temps return and more snow shortly thereafter. Your snow pics are lovely and your gingerbread sounds good. Enjoy!
Hugs, Beth
